I have always had a true passion for books! I am happiest in a room with books all around me…on shelves, next to my bed, above tables and under. For this reason I have always loved to give and to receive BOOKS for holiday presents and going to Catherine Anspon’s Texas Artists Today Book signing the other night lit the fire in me to spread the word of all the Great Books that are around. I have been noting online, on TV and by visiting my favorite book stops…one, an old favorite, Brazos Bookstore and secondly a new entry, Curate, Paper City’s Pop-up Books Boutique in Tootsies, Highland Village that was chocked full of awesome design books. All hand-picked from the newest classic designers and vintage first editions from the likes of C.Z. Guest, Gloria Vanderbilt, Billy Baldwin, Tony Duquette and many more. I was inspired, to share with you, what I feel are some of the best, most unique and favorites of mine.
The list is varied, but I must admit it swings to the side of what I love to do and look at…heavy on fashion, although there were more Home Design Books that I loved and just couldn’t narrow my choices. So, could you say this is my personal Santa Book Wish List…you betcha!
The list could go on and on, whether you’re a browser like myself and can literally spend hours in a bookstore or have picked up the online bug and just know what to order. There are so many great books out there in Tabletop, Hard copy or Kindle-like format. Enjoy…..and to all a Good Read! Happy Holidays!
